La Roux

La Roux ( /lɑːˈruː/ lah-ROO, French: [laˈʁu]) are an English electropop duo made up of singer, keyboardist, co-writer and co-producer Elly Jackson, and co-writer and co-producer Ben Langmaid. Jackson describes their relationship as "very much a half and half sharing situation... not like a singer producer outfit", but also recognises that due to her prominence, it may "look like a solo act". The supporting band members to the duo are Michael 'Mikey' Norris (on keyboard), Mickey O'Brien (keyboards and backing vocals) and William Bowerman (on drums). more »

Well tonight out on the streets I'm gonna follow you
And tell you all about a scene that you would kill for
You're gonna love what's running right in front of you
But you won't see it by the light of the sun
Come out tigerlily, you're caressing me
I'll take you up, I'll turn you on, I'll take your apathy
I wouldn't lie to you blossom, won't you let it go
I'm gonna give you what you want and don't you know (That you)

I know you better than this
I could be here when you call
I'll make you top of the list
And in the crash of the dark
I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips

They can sell it all they want but you cannot agree
I don't like the taste of damn morality
You'll find your bread and you butter where you fake it
And put your face in the gutter of a snake pit
But out communication is telepathy
What you give is what you get out of us naturally
And we can wait 'til the shadow rolls along
And turn the page of the story that has long since found a home

I know you better than this
I could be here when you call
I'll make you top of the list
And in the crash of the dark
I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips

Have you ever felt like you're being followed?
Or watched the ones that held your stare?
Turned around to see who's behind you to find there's no one there
Pra-lurking in the dark is someone who breathes you night and day
There's a friend who wants so much more
But if they can't have you, they'll never let you walk away

And in the crash of the dark
I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss

And in the crash of the dark
I'll be your light in the mist
I can see you burning with desire for a kiss
Psychobabble all upon your lips
